Bonnie Hunter is my new best friend. Forever. She doesn’t quite know it yet, but she will one day. I need to get busy working harder on Pioneer Woman. She needs to be my new best friend too. Forever. She just doesn’t know it yet.
You see? Bonnie posted my blog URL on her Facebook page yesterday. And the hits came in so fast I couldn’t keep up. You could say it went viral. In fact, some have said that. Viral being a relative term in my blogging world. So I’m going to post about Bonnie every day. She apparently has a really big fan club. And I’m the newest member.
I thought I’d upload the videos I have of Bonnie. I’m sure all you people in Bonnie’s Fan Club want to see the videos, right? Actually I was going to post them anyway. Because they are so cute. But after the blog went viral, it became an urgent necessity. Any day now I’m going to start to sound like Sally Field when she won the Academy Award…… “They like me. They really like me!” Only to find out that you all really just like Bonnie. So I’m posting about Bonnie every day. After all, we are BFF’s. Somebody please tell Bonnie.
So here’s a video – you’re gonna love it!
Isn’t she a cutie? If you haven’t actually seen her in person before, now you feel like you have, don’t you? So glad I shot that video so I could share it with you all. Here’s one more:
And now for my own fans who have been with me on this blogging journey. Bonnie’s fans can just skip over this part. I took a picture that I just had to share. Prior to yesterday, my biggest number of hits on any one day was 382. And that happened just one week ago. When someone shared a link to the blog on a Yahoo Group called “Stashbusters.” A group of over 5,000 members. Before that the biggest day was in December, right after the JSS Christmas party, when there were 305 hits.
Yesterday? The number of hits was one thousand, three hundred and forty nine. Yes, that’s 1,349. Which is, in my blogging world? Viral. In Pioneer Woman’s world? It’s a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very slow day. It’s all relative. But pretty exciting for li’l ol’ me.
WordPress has this nifty little graph screen with your numbers for the last 30 days. Well, until yesterday the number at the top of the graph was 400. Now it’s 1,500. So the graph changed quite dramatically. And here it is:
The first time I saw this with the tall bar on the far right last night, it took me by surprise. All those other little bars shrunk way down from the day before when the top of the graph was only 400! And as you can see, I took this pic this afternoon and there were already 363 hits today.
For reference sake, the blog I wrote about Pioneer Woman posted on Feb 17. So according to the bars, Bonnie is way more popular than PW. Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that Bonnie herself posted the link? New BFF, for sure.
By the way, welcome to the new subscribers to this li’l ol’ blog who are in France and England! And one who commented from Germany! And a great big thanks to my new BFF, Bonnie. Love ya, Bonnie!
